1 Corinthians 1
Notes on Sin
SIN - God will prepare us to be blameless on the day that Jesus returns. (v.8) That is the day we are looking for and heading toward. It is a day of judgement, so our goal is to be holy. Only God can help us achieve the blameless result that we long for. We must rely upon Him to stay away from sin in our lives.
SIN - There were four different divisions within the people of Corinth. (v.12) It all gathered around who they declared as their personal leader. They didn’t see themselves as following Jesus as much as following the messenger. They mistook the leader for the savior. When we get our eyes on men, we will always fall into sin. When we keep our thoughts on God, we will stray from fights and divisions. It really doesn’t matter which leader we ascribe to, as long as we ascribe to Jesus and to God above all.
